Natural Birth Jealousy


If you have read Thomas’s birth story (here) you will know things didn’t go according to plan in fact they were as far away from what I wanted as you could get. I had planned to have a nice calm natural birth in a nice birthing unit instead I was rushed for an emergency cesarean. Obviously I'm glad that everything went OK and Thomas arrived safe and sound as a cesarean was the only option for us in the end.

BUT a couple of friends have since given birth and have been lucky enough to have a natural vaginal birth and I can’t help feeling a little jealous of them, Silly huh? Some women opt to have a c-section but for me it was something that I never wanted to have. For me giving birth is a natural and special experience that as a women I wanted to go through regardless of how much it hurts. I wanted to experience giving birth, I wanted to see what it was like is it really like what you see on One Born Every Minute.

With my next baby I really hope I can go down the VBAC route so that I can experience a natural birth as but obviously if it comes down to it and it is dangerous for me and my future baby then I would have a caesarean.

What do you think? Have you had a Cesarean do you feel jealous of people who have natural births.
